Jim Geraghty of NRO’s “Kerry Spot” has a bit of a scoop on the Dan Rather front:
A little birdie familiar with discussions at CBS News tells me that the network suits will announce Dan Rather’s replacement the day they release the report into the fake memos.
I guess the aim is to distract from the bad news by creating two headlines instead of just the bad one. “REPORT FINDS CBS DIDN’T CARE WHETHER BURKETT WAS RELIABLE; BUT HEY, NEVER MIND THAT, THEY NAMED A NEW ANCHOR” or something like that.
Yeah, that will work. (Eye roll.)
I wonder if this means an announcement will be soon.
